GUEST,Pete Peterson Origins: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More) (76* d) RE: Lyr Req: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More) 31 Mar 04


Hi Barbara--
   I got out my copy of Canticle for Leibowitz today & re-read it. (Good excuse, THANKS!) The reference didn't appear until the 3rd part, where LUCIFER is fallen (not Babylon!) was used as a phrase beining that atomic bombs were agin being used in war. Not sure the theology of that one-- I take it to mean "Satan has fallen from Heaven to the earth, and is working his mischief." There is of course the secondary meaning of Lucifer = bringer of light, which is something an atomic explosion certainly does.
Midchuck-- if there is enough interest I will post Slobberchops is Hungry, which we set to guess what tune, using Sacred Harp harmonies. See you at NEFFA! (but not till Saturday afternoon)
